Mother of Triplets

I'm linking up with Kelly's Korner today. SUYL: Mom's of Multiples.  For those family and friends who normally read my blog, you can skip this post....You already know my story :)

After a struggle with "unexplained infertility"and help from a fertility specialist, my husband and I found out we were pregnant August 2010 with Triplets!! (You can read my first two blog posts for more info here & here)

We were expecting 2 boys and 1 girl

The pregnancy was going GREAT! I was getting HUGE. The babies were growing and my body was handling everything perfectly.  I went in for my routine monthly growth scan. I was 32w6d pregnant. It was at that ultrasound that we found out our little girl had passed away.  She no longer had a heartbeat.  I ended up having an emergency c-section that day. You can read about it here: Bittersweet Birthday

Baby A: Vincent Ryan 4 lbs 15 oz

Baby B: Karissa Marie 2 lbs 14 oz (in heaven with Jesus)

Baby C: Landen James 3 lbs 7 oz

My husband and I feel extremely blessed to have our two boys.  We could have lost all of them that day.  We trust in the Lord, and know that although the reasoning for Karissa's passing is unknown, there is a purpose. We think about her often and will always concider ourselves as parents of triplets, even though from the outside, we look like parents of twins.  I enjoy reading other blogs of parents of multiples, people who have struggled with infertility or who have experienced the loss of a baby.  Blogs provide encouragement to me. There are so many people who have gone through the heartache we have been through and so many people who have experienced much worse.  I praise the Lord everyday for the life He has given me and for the two precious boys he has entrusted us to raise into Godly men.
Our boys are 13 months now and we enjoy everyday with them!

We are expecting another little one in July! And are so excited our little family is expanding! 

My blog really isn't for any other purpose, than to just document things going on in our life and keep out-of-town friends and family up to date. 

I'm a proud Mommy of twins (but mother of triplets at heart)
